Adobe Encore Error when importing Subtitle Text File

ERROR MESSAGE: The subtitle or menu subpicture is too complex to be encoded

This error requires the re-setting of the margins when importing subtitles.

I got this frustrating error when I was importing a subtitle text file into Adobe Encore when preparing a multilingual DVD for a client. It turned out to be another known Encore bug which I remedied by doing the following:

Left Edge Margin is 72 by default, Right Edge margin is 648 by default.
The margin sizes need to be reset to 120, 600
The font size may need to be reduced too.
